As part of the Council’s preparation for the Mayor of London’s first ‘Borough of Culture’, we are inviting local businesses to feed into a Visitor Experience Charter, a Waltham Forest Culture Guide, and also nominate staff members to be trained as accredited Waltham Forest Welcomers.
On Wednesday 31 October, Waltham Forest held its first Think Work Summit, which brought together key professionals from across a range of sectors to discuss the future of work and skills, and potential solutions to new challenges that are emerging in employment. The Summit was chaired by Cllr Simon Miller, the Lead Member for Economic Growth and High Streets, while Cllr Clare Coghill, the Leader of the Council, opened the event with our ‘Think Work’ vision to support residents and businesses to be able to adapt to the changing nature of work.
If you are a small or medium sized business based in Waltham Forest you could benefit from a voucher worth up to £2,500 to upgrade your broadband, and be ready for gigabit capable infrastructure.
Are you a business struggling with your broadband speeds, or expecting to need a better, faster connection in the near future? Gigabit speeds will enable you to conduct your business more efficiently, with the growth of cloud data storage, improved security systems, audio and video conferencing, streaming and remote working all having a huge impact on the need for faster broadband.
London Borough of Waltham Forest invests in the future of creative industries with a two-year, £100,000 business support programme
Waltham Forest businesses can help promote the Mayor’s #LondonNeedsYouAlive movement which is targeting young adults who are at risk of being involved in knife crime
Believed to be the first initiative of its kind in London, open workspaces in Waltham Forest will be able to pay nothing in business rates to help small business, creatives and entrepreneurs thrive in Waltham Forest.
